Test Before You Invest - Plein Air for Beginners

Plein Air for Beginners - Test before you Invest!

One full-day outdoor workshop with teaching in the morning, a lunch break, then hands-on painting experience in the afternoon.

The morning talk will be an interactive discussion on the basics of plein air--what to bring, how to pack light, how to setup, what to look for in a painting spot, how to start painting, and any other question you can think of. I'll do a quick demo, so you can learn by watching.

After lunch, I'll walk you through the process of painting your own painting using one of my plein air easel setups. You don't need to bring supplies nor have prior painting experience.

This is a "no-commitment" opportunity to see if you like plein air painting without needing to buy all the stuff just to try it. And if you love plein air painting so much that you want your own gear, you will already seen 5 different easel setups to get a feel for what kind of setup you prefer.

Be sure to bring your own lunch or purchase one in town (a short walk).

Saturday, August 21. 9 am - 4 pm. Lakefront Park, Hudson, WI. Meet near the bathrooms at the south end of the park between the public boat launch and the marina.

Price includes full day of instruction, use of my equipment, paint, and a small canvas. Class size is limited to 5 participants. $120.
